romney lashed him to george w. bush. the bottom line is romney could not counter the obama narrative that he wanted to go back to the policies that got the country in trouble in the first place. this was largely due to his campaign's strategic decision to try to make the election solely a referendum on obama. as a result, there was little clear rationale for a romney presidency, other than he would not be obama. david winstin joins us, adviser to john boehner, unpaid, advised newt beginning rich. david, thanks for joining us. i was trying to read your thinking here and post election analysis. i think it's so interesting. if you get people angry about the way things are economic alley you think they'll blame the incumbent but it seems like a lot of people said, yeah, things aren't that great, especially poor working people, bush. >> governor romney thought this would be a referendum of barack obama. case closed. when you take a look at group of voters who said the economy was not so good, so you would think that would be an opportunity for governor romney, actually the president carri

at 2007, you know, george w. bush is president. we have got the wars going on. we have got the bush tax cuts in 2007 our deficit was $160 billion. that number almost sounds -- $160 billion. it's a spending problem. >> bill: i want you to do me a favor and call diane sawyer after we get off the air i want you to tell her as kristen pointed out in 2007 the highest revenue in the history of the republic came into washington because the taxes were fairly moderate and people were investing and capital gains was kicking in at the 15 and 30% rate and all that money was coming in washington and people were working and all that money was coming to washington. and you can tell diane that, you know, just taxing and spending isn't going to help us. you can do that? will you do that? >> i will. she is my bff i will be calling her after get off the show. dying to hear what you think too. >> bill: always. >> i don't know anybody who thinks that everything is going to be solved just by raising tacks. i keep hearing republicans say. this look, obama recommended or proposed cutting the defense department

on the former president george h.w. bush this according to reports out of houston saying he was in the hospital thursday for treatment of a lingering cough. he is 88 years old and has been in and out of the hospital recently because of complications due to wrongitis. they say expect the president to be released on saturday. he has been under hospital care for nearly a week. this is the republican line. hello? steve? good morning. caller: yes. good morning. pedro, off question and comment. one problem is -- completely out of control. and they continue to -- don't want to touch -- in this country. because the prices of the medical are too -- government -- i don't want to -- medicare, keep complaining about -- and because the hospital -- and they never contribute that much noun medicare. and they put all the money they could toward the working -- if you add them up, it's not that much money. host: to the proposal at hand, what are your comments or thoughts about it? caller: i think it should be cut a lot more than what they cut, because environment is what is killing this country and upping medica
on the spike in our national debt over the fast 12 years. january of 2001, president george w. bush taking office. our national debt stood at $5.7 trillion. by the time he left eight years later, january of 2009, the debt was over 10.6 trillion. as of this week, our debt is $16.3 trillion. a must see fox news sunday tomorrow, we'll have exclusive interview with republican speaker of the house, john boehner, as well as interview with treasury secretary tim geithner who is the president's lead negotiator in the fiscal cliff talks. all tomorrow on fox news sunday, check your local listings for the time and channel in your area. >> heather: wicked weather out west pounding parts of northern california for a second day in a row. the rain soaked area bracing for more stormy weather today. new warnings of potential mudslides and flash floods after yesterday's system washed out streets, brought down power lines, knocking out electricity to thousands. dominic is live for us with the latest. dominic? >> hi there. worst yet to come. this third storm coming through overnight tonight. no one really sur
under president george w. bush, is now president of the national cable television association. >> many of these state-owned local utilities have often failed because of financial hardship and rarely are offering speeds that are faster or cheaper than what's provided privately. even in glasgow, kentucky the top speed is only 6 megabits per second for $36. that's hardly exceptional. it's certainly no better than what's being provided in the private market. >> reporter: where average speeds are three times as fast, claims powell and prices are falling, not rising. >> the price per megabit per second has decreased 87% since 1999. in fact in 2010, the federal communications commission conducted a survey of american citizens and 93% of respondents said they were very satisfied with their broadband experience. many cable companies have recently announced very substantial increases in speed with no accompanying increase in price. so the evidence suggests that consumers are getting real value in broadband in the united states. >> reporter: but johnston doesn't buy powell's megabit average, says
.s. substantially increased its commitment to fighting aid its under president george w. bush. yesterday secretary of state hillary clinton unveiled the obama administration's road map to increase access to treatment and eliminate new infriction-- infections in children by 2015. >> so as we continue to drive down the number of new infections and drive up the number of people on treatment, eventually we'll be able to treat more people than become infected every year. that will be the tipping point. we will then get ahead of the pandemic and an aids-free generation will be in our sight. >> it's been more than 30 years since the first known aids cases appeared in 1981. in the early years contracting aids was a near certain death sentence. >> there are few scarier things than the discovery of a new killer disease, one medical science admits is mostly a mystery for which there is no certain cause or cure. doctors have called the new one bizarre, frustrating, >> suarez: but wider access to drugs in recent years has changed the way people live with aids. deaths have dropped by 26% from their highest leve
and israeli security. and in january of 2009, president george w. bush went to jerusalem and made a statement that summarized our policy and made the point valid which other presidents had made, including president obama, is that the israelis have a very successful state. but they don't have security for their people. they're entitled to it. the palestinians don't have a state and they want one. the only way each can get what it wants, is if the other also gets what it wants. in other words, they should be mutually vested in each other's success, in those objectives. >> president obama sent you to the middle east in 2009 following a similar armed conflict between israel and hamas. here we are, three careers later, at the end of another conflict between israel and hamas. what if anything in that region has changed since your visit in 20091. >> well the possibility of a two-state solution is more difficult now than it was then. it was very difficult then. the israelis and the palestinian authority. and it's ironic because both israel and the palestinian authority are opposed to hamas. they have
w. bush got re-elected in 2004 and he and the republicans were prepared to implement the agenda he ran on, elections of consequences. remember that famous soundbyte? obama ran on higher taxes for the wealthy and won. lz, shouldn't he be making the same argument? that is what he ran on. >> absolutely. you know what i find interesting, if you look at the statistics, many of the blue states that supported president obama are some of the richest states in the country. and so not only did you have him defeat romney pretty handedly in the electoral college, but people willing to sacrifice their own money to make sure that president obama, his policies made it to the white house. you know, it was the exact opposite in just the republicans. some of the red states were some of the poorest states in the country. so i think it is very interesting that when you see average american citizens who happen to be making a little bit more money willing to sacrifice for the good of the country, i think that's a good message and something to get behind and stand on. >> lz, our producers are here, can w
happened, when they cut the jobs under george w. bush we lost 8 million jobs. when they raised taxes, this goes back to bill clinton when the rate was 39%, we created 22 million new jobs. i mean the evidence is out there. boehner keeps throwing that out there. and every economist, every reputable economist says that is total bs. again, that's classic evidence of boehner's lack of leadership. lynn, thanks, john for the call. lynn is calling from coos bay oregon. >> i love your show. >> bill: thank you. caller: you i thought boehner was delusional. i think he has a serious drinking problem that probably happy capshandy caps his rational thinking. republicans continue to be obstructionists. i knew they would do it after the election. but one thing i found out last week that people aren't realizing about this tax problem that's looming is that i was talking with my tax preparer last week. she told me that the irs is going to have to rewrite the entire 1040 form and that they may not allow electronic filing until mid march because they are going to be beh
, remember president george w. bush was leading on immigration, so was senator john mccain, both on immigration and on climate change. the fact that the republican party has gotten away from sensible positions on both those issues shows how far down the rabbit hole the republican party has fallen. >> okay. well, politico reports governor brewer has met with casino magnate sheldon adelson amid talks she may run for president, yes, in 2016. stop laughing. he was such a big help to mitt romney, i suppose jan brewer might be the right logical choice next. after all, he's only spent, what was it? $150 million on this election? john? >> go ahead, john. >> go ahead, ana marie. i'm dumbfounded by the fact -- >> you're speechless? >> i'm speechless. >> why? >> jan brewer, presidential timber. are you out of your mind? there's no way. i mean -- >> i say jan brewer 2016. ana marie cox and jonathan capehart. thank you so much. >>> next, is this the week the president picks susan rice as his next secretary of state or has he preferred someone else? stay with us.

that we expect and that we remember from the george w. bush era, i feel like some of those partisan divisions are getting blurred and you can't predict a person's divisions based on the party? >> i think that's true. it's less prominent in this space than some of the other spaces. obviously, the vote we had today on the disability treaty was painful for many of us. that was a right wing versus all of the democrats in the senate. there are a lot of things in the bill. we have talked about this before. i'm very proud of the sweeping contract reforms we got included. i hope your listeners who know the kind of money we have wasted on abusive contracts in the war space that they stay on the members of congress to make sure it stays in the bill. it's not in the house version. it's going to be a conferenceable item. all the reforms, they could really make a difference going forward that we're holding contractors accountable to a standard that americans would feel better about. >> as we have finished the war in iraq and as the end game in afghanistan is starting to become more clear, do you
to a vote. this treaty, though signed by president obama, was actually negotiated by president george w. bush. but that was not good enough for 38 republicans. republicans made up transparently ridiculous reasons to vote against it. they said it threatened america's sovereignty, even though senator kerry repeatedly showed them that the treaty requires no changes in u.s. law and that the treaty cannot be used as the basis for a lawsuit in u.s. courts. the opponents said it was inappropriate to consider a treaty ma post election lame duck session, never mind that just since i've been watching the senate, they've approved treaties 19 times during lame duck sessions. and then they said, and this is what did it, this is what the 38 no votes were trapped by, the tiniest possible interest group you could imagine affecting the outcome of something so important. the homeschooling crowd. then they said that the treaty endangered homeschooling. homeschooling fanatics expressed worry that the treaty could lead to the government imposing new regulations on the homeschooling of disabled children, eve
're going to succeed. >> jennifer: and on the inclusivity front. even george w. bush had a speech yesterday where he was talking about the importance of immigration and you know, obviously rubio has been saying that but if they continue down this path they've been on, it is over for them. 2016, we have a new poll for hillary clinton or at least testing the waters as "the washington post," abc news poll, not her testing the waters but them. a poll showing 57% of americans support a presidential run by clinton. 37% oppose it. how much time off do we give her after she steps down from being secretary of state before we start to read the tea leaves? >> we're reading them now. >> jennifer: i totally agree with you. >> i'm a secret delegate for the 2016 democratic national convention. my first choice is hillary clinton. i think she's the front-runner amongst the colleagues i've talked to. dozens of my colleagues since the election. she's a front-runner. i think you give her about six months. >> jennifer: that's exact
writer for george w. bush. donna, you know hillary clinton and you know her so well. you worked on both of her husband's political campaign. the poll numbers look pretty stunning, but you know, it's easy to talk about something in the hypothetical, then someone runs and people start finding out all kinds of bad things about you. what do you think? >> well, first of all, there are 1,422 days until the next big presidential election. >> who's counting, donna? >> i'm always counting. let me start by saying i think secretary clinton is a phenomenal woman. she has been a proven leader at the state department. she has not only the right credentials if she decides to run, but i believe that right now, she's focusing on the job at hand. tomorrow, i think she's giving a human rights speech in ireland. and beyond that, i think she wants to complete her tenure as secretary of state, perhaps rest, revive and get herself back into the kind of campaign lifestyle that maybe she wants to get back into. but i think she has enough time to figure out what she wants to do. perhaps, write a book on her amaz
. no one thinks that. >> i never said this was about home schooling. >> george w. bush signed -- >> i want to give you a chance, john. effectively explain how the u.n. would intervene in the household or schooling matters affecting american citizens. how would they functionally do it? interfere. >> if the u.s. signs a treaty, they're responsible for living up to that treaty and can enforce that treaty. what you're basically saying is why don't we sign the treaty and we'll just ignore it and hope other countries live up to it. >> he doesn't have an answer, chris. >> that's the answer. let me ask you this, why don't we do this -- >> i want to do him a favor. i want to endorse rick santorum for the republican nomination in 2016. >> i think you've been very clever there, john, to say some people think. do you think it? >> i think -- >> do you fear u.n. hopes coming into our country? >> it makes me very nervous when we take countries that have no beliefs in civil liberties, countries who are terrible on human rights and we say we're going to put you in charge of decisions -- >> that's not what
frat owe and former white house deputy press secretary under president george w. bush and managing partner at hamilton place strategies kiki mclean, senior adviser to the 2008 hillary clinton presidential campaign. good morning. >> good morning. >> tony, do republicans sit back and wish governor sununu would quit talking? >> not only is it offensive to a large part of the lack trat, it happens to be wrong. republicans did very well and in fact governor romney did very well among lower income voters. so it's wrong but we shouldn't be talking that way. we should be talking about all americans and economic opportunity for all americans and trying to achieve that. that's the important thing. >> governor sununu of course has made controversial comments before. let me play for you what he said about president obama after the first presidential debate back in october. >> what people saw last night i think was a president that revealed his incompetence, how lazy and detached he is and how he has absolutely no idea how serious the economic problems of the country are. >> john sununu also su
source, former president george w. bush. in only his second major speech since leaving office the 43rd president called on lawmakers to revamp immigration laws. >> america can be a lawful society and a welcoming society at the same time. as our nation debates the proper course of action relating to immigration, i hope we do so with a benevolent spirit and keep in mind the contribution of immigrants. >> this is part of a larger story. some republicans looking to overhaul immigration after getting pummeled in the presidential election including a new gop superpack that hopes to give conservative donors a better return on their millions. joining me congressman luis gutierrez, democrat from illinois and member of the congressional hispanic caucus. always good to see you. >> thanks, chris, good morning. >> president obama won 71% of the latino vote we heard romney campaign manager saying he regretted running hard to the right in the primary. the opposing view is the gop's latino problem isn't based on immigration issues. there's a pew exit poll of hispanic voters taken in november found imm
a window of opportunity to resolve that issue. and former george h.w. bush is being treated at a hospital for bronchitis. he may be released this weekend. now back to "hardball ". >>> back to "hardball." let's take making a deal here. for all those at home who want to see republicans and democrats work together to avoid the fiscal cliff, we can bring you two lawmakers who are open to cutting a deal before the end of the year. with me are members from both sides of the aisle, u.s. congressman lee terry, a republican from nebraska, and u.s. congressman jerry connolly, a democrat from nearby southern virginia. but first, i want to start with you. you told the "omaha world herald" this about republicans, we're screwed either way. we have no leverage in these discussions. congressman, what did you mean by that? >> what i mean by that is that the president wants us to take a tax vote before he's willing to talk about anything else cutting or reforming, and republicans just aren't going to do that. so what he's doing is setting us up to be the fall people for going over the fiscal cliff. frankly

of 1990 at andrews air force base where george h.w. bush went in there. we forget now how incredibly overwhelming the deficit story was at that point. you know, you look at that administration. the coming in, just no one thought they could do anything. it's not unlike the conversations we're having now. and they went in, they did the deal, president bush had to shift from read my lips to as only he could put it, read my hips. and it was good for the country, it created a political dynamic that cost president bush the election in 1992, and which we're still living, because that gave us grover norquist, et cetera. >> let's get to grover norquist in a minute, but i do have a question. the gop plan consists of $2.2 trillion in savings over a decade. that includes raging the eligibility age for medicare from 65 to 67. and lowering cost of living increases for social security benefits. they also propose overhauling the tax code to generate $800 billion in new revenue. but without raising taxes on the wealthy. in a letter to the president, leading republicans compared their plan to one ersk
from the expiration of the george w. bush tax cuts for the top 2%. now, i want to make this clear. i said this earlier as it's worth repeating because it's not said very often. every american taxpayer gets a tax reduction. the superwealthy to the very minimum taxpayer in this nation gets a reduction in what the president is proposing and that is to continue the current tax rate on those under $250,000, adjusted gross income. for those who have income over and above that, they get that tax reduction and above that they are going to pay an additional amount up to 3.9% in two different traunches. so everyone gets a tax break, but those superwealthy, the 2%, they're going to pay for and that will amount to a substantial amount of money over 10 years and frankly they've had 12 years of really low, low taxes, the lowest taxes really ever since the 1930's. the president has also proposed something that's very important. we talked about this last week. i want to talk about this again the next time we come here and that is, how do we grow jobs, how do we put people back to work? the president
george h.w. bush, the first president bush, who by the way of course was a world war ii veteran, did heroic things during that war. and it also has the support of former senate majority leader bob dole, certainly a patriot. senator dole, a disabled veteran from world war ii, who led the fight to pass the treaty, was here yesterday urging republicans to support it. now, mr. president, think about that. robert dole, who was grievously injured in world war ii, spent more than two years in a hospital, he came to this senate floor, and the first speech he gave was on disabilities, and we needed to do something about it. he was here -- he led the fight to pass the treaty, urging republicans to support it. a few republicans greeted him as he was in his wheelchair here. they greeted this 89-year-old war hero, i repeat, patriot, who just last week was in walter reed hospital. then one by one, all but a handful of them voted against the treaty, ensuring its failure. but their professed reasons for opposing it had no basis in fact -- none. most republicans acknowledge that. some use an excuse,

. george w. bush signed in a phase-out of the estate tax. the top rate stays at 55%. the exemption level started rising from $1 million and going up. it was repealed completely in 2010 for one year. then it sprang back to life as part of the extension of the bush tax cuts that president obama signed into law. you have a debate -- very few members dispute that it needs to be continued. the debate is over whether you continue it at the current level. there is an exemption level, $10 million for a couple. or at the white house would prefer a 45% rate. that is the debate right now. there's a split among democrats. the white house wants a less generous estate tax. red-leaning states like max baucus. host: that was the headline recently in "the wall street journal," showing the senators. at its highest, what was the estate tax? how many people did the estate tax affect? guest: we are talking tens of thousands. right now it affects 3000 estates. the exemption level is set high historical novel. it has come down significantly. big argument from conservatives is it hits small businesses and farms

. in 2001, president george w. bush decided to spend a large portion of the surpluses he inherited from president clinton to cut tax rates. many democrats opposed him then because the tax cuts were unfair, favoring the highest-income americans. to overcome that obstacle, the republicans resorted to a parliamentary technique, budget reconciliation, a maneuver that allowed for passage of their tax cuts but forced them to expire after 2010, at the end of the ten-year budget window. so we scroll forward to 2010. as 2010 ended, president obama and many democrats in congress, including myself, wanted to extend the tax cuts for middle-class families but let rates on income above $200,000 for an individual and $250,000 for a family revert to the clinton era levels. our senate republican friends filibustered that effort, refusing to allow the middle-class tax cut without a tax cut for the highest incomes as well. their hostage strategy worked that time and the president and senate democrats reluctantly agreed to extend the tax cuts for two more years. so now the two years is up and these tax rat
